Taj Amer opens its doors in Jaipur
Indian Hotels Company (IHCL) today announced the opening of Taj Amer, a new oasis of modern luxury in Jaipur. The hotel’s design seamlessly blends contemporary elegance while paying homage to Rajasthan’s traditional architecture and offers stunning views of the ancient Aravalli Range.
Puneet Chhatwal, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, IHCL said, “IHCL has been in the Pink City for over 50 years. The culturally rich and historically significant city has evolved into a global tourist destination and important commercial hub. This opening is in line with IHCL’s vision of strengthening our presence in key markets across India. With the launch of Taj Amer, IHCL has grown to nine hotels across brands in Jaipur.”
Strategically located in Kukas, Taj Amer is a short drive from the majestic Amber Fort and other popular tourist spots. Stunning marble arches at the entrance lead into the lobby with its high domed ceilings, lotus filigree work and carefully curated artworks. The luxurious 245 rooms and suites reflect the hotel’s grandeur with peacock motifs, intricate lattice work and rich textures, offering picture postcard views. Hotel offers myriad dining experiences – from the legendary all-day diner, Shamiana; a selection of international cocktails with trademark local flavours at House of Nomad to small bites at Emperor’s Court and the soon to launch Chinese cuisine at the signature House of Ming. The roof top infinity pool is the perfect place for a bird’s eye view of the Pink City. Inspired by ancient Indian healing wisdom Jiva Spa will be a sanctuary that provides a soothing blend of ayurvedic massages and aromatherapy for holistic rejuvenation.
Jaigarh, the lavishly appointed 16,000 sq. ft pillar-less ballroom, the adjoining 8,000 sq. ft lawns and spacious banqueting areas are ideal for weddings, business conferences as well as elegant soirees.
“Taj Amer’s exquisite design is blended with our highly personalised service. We look forward to welcoming our guests to this new address in Jaipur.” said Devraj Singh, General Manager, Taj Amer.
Jaipur is the capital of the state of Rajasthan. Home to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Amer Fort and Jantar Mantar, the city has emerged as an important centre for automotive and information technology, in addition to tourism and handicrafts.
